Dell has announced a new premium Chromebook at IFA 2018 that is the very first Inspiron Chromebook to launch. The machine is called the Inspiron Chromebook 14 2-in-1 and crams an 8th gen Intel Core i3-8130U running at up to 3.4GHz with a 4MB cache under the hood. Dell also fits the machine with up to 128GB of eMMC onboard storage and 4GB of DDR4 2400MHz. Chromebook 14 buyers will get a 14.0-inch IPS FHD 1080p touchscreen with wide viewing angles, while graphics are handled by Intel UHD Graphics 620 with shared graphics memory. The display can be folded back in tent mode, stand mode, tablet mode, or in normal laptop mode depending on what you need to do. Dell designed the premium Chromebook with... Read more...
Computex is still in full swing, but Dell is already gearing up for E3 2018 kicking off next week. As part of that effort, the computer maker has announced a new gaming desktop called the Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop 5676, along with a few premium gaming peripherals to lock and load it up for combat. The new desktop will be available on June 12th starting at $849.99, making it affordable for many gamers.  Dell is powering 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen processors under the hood of the desktops, to provide the power and responsiveness that gamers need. Various Radeon graphics solutions will be offered with select configurations being VR-ready with options up to the Radeon RX 580. Dual graphics cards... Read more...
There are a litany of reasons why you might consider buying a gaming PC rather than rolling your own rig, including cost. Yes, many graphics cards have recently settled down closer to MSRP, but who knows if they will go back up again? On top of that, system memory is still trending on the high side (compared to a year or two ago). For the most part, pre-built systems have been somewhat sheltered from these volatile markets relative to the channel. That means the opportunity still exists to get into PC gaming at a reasonable price with a pre-built PC; Dell's Inspiron Gaming Desktop (5680) is a prime example. In fact, the Inspiron Gaming line has consistently represented one of the best values... Read more...
Brace yourself for a barrage of product announcements, as that tends to happen when Intel releases a new batch of processors, as it did this morning. In this case, Intel added a bunch of new Coffee Lake chips to the fold. Dell did not waste any time utilizing the new CPUs, as it has gone and revamped several of its product lines, notably its Alienware and Inspiron gaming laptops, and its Inspiron all-in-one family. Dell's Alienware 15 and 17 laptops now boast new 8th generation Intel Core i5, i7, and i9 processor options, including those newfangled 6-core chips. And for the first time ever, Dell says its Alienware laptops can be overclocked up to 5GHz, a feat made possible in part by added focus... Read more...
Dell just launched a new Inspiron 17 5000 series notebook computer that packs a new AMD Ryzen 5 Mobile or Ryzen 3 Mobile Raven Ridge APU under the hood, similar to what we showed you in HP's recent Envy x360 . The most basic configuration with these new APUs inside is the Inspiron 17 5000 with the Ryzen 3 2200U APU packing Radeon Vega3 Graphics. That machine runs Windows 10 Home 64-bit and has 8GB of DDR4 2400 MHz RAM and can be fitted with up to 32GB of RAM. However, the AMD Ryzen Mobile horsepower goes up from there... Internal storage is a 1TB 5400 RPM SATA HDD and the machine has a 17.3-inch 1920 x 1080 anti-glare screen. Power is from a 42WHr battery that is integrated... Read more...
Dell has continued to push the recent design innovations of its premium XPS family further down its product stack, in an effort to enhance its mainstream consumer products as well. When we reviewed Dell’s XPS 27 7760 All-in-One desktop PC earlier this year, we were impressed with its performance, features, and design aesthetic, including its impressive sound system. Continuing that effort to marry both form and function, we received the new Dell Inspiron 27 7000 All-in-One desktop for review. It turns out this system was the winner of a 2017 COMPUTEX Design and Innovation Award, but it has been updated since then. In addition, the model we have in for testing happens to be powered by something... Read more...
The Dell Inspiron 7000 Gaming straddles the line between mainstream and gaming notebooks. It is offered in a few sizes, including a svelte 14" model, but after getting some hands-on time with the Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming at CES earlier this year, we decided to check the larger laptop out. It sports a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU, along with some fairly high-end internals. Before we dig into the Inspiron 15 7000’s specs, we should point out that this particular system sits at the top of the Inspiron line. The entry-level 3000 series is easy on the budget, while the 5000 series and 7000 series offer improved power and features, but carry higher price... Read more...
Everyone needs a little more gaming in their life. CES 2017 has brought out some truly absurd mobile fragging monsters, like the Acer Predator 21 X and Razer Project Valerie gaming notebooks. For those of us with pesky mortgages and student loans interfering with our stacks of cash, a more modest solution is in order. The Inspiron 7000 Gaming series represents Dell’s mobile mainstream gaming vision, positioned as an affordable alternative to its high-end Alienware offerings. On Tuesday, Dell announced the latest iterations of the Inspiron lineup - the Inspiron 14 and 15 Gaming. Today, we got to go hands on with the 15-inch model inside the Dell Experience Suite. The Inspiron 15 Gaming jumps... Read more...
Dell has some enticing new hardware on tap for its newest Inspiron 7000 series laptops, including the latest and most powerful Intel Skylake processors and NVIDIA GPUs, but the computer maker sent us a decidedly modest version for this evaluation. PC makers usually load their review systems to the hilt, in an effort to make them perform well in commonly used benchmarks, but Dell is confident that its Inspiron 15 7000 delivers solid, real-world performance for the money, even at base specifications, so we gave it a look. Before we dig into the system we tested, let’s take discuss where it falls in Dell’s current family of laptops. If you’re looking for the most powerful and stylish of Dell’s offerings,...

For years, the notion of a tablet replacing one's laptop was a novel idea, but hardly feasible. Much has changed in recent times, however, with Microsoft going so far as to claim that its newest Surface units are indeed powerful enough to take the place of a bonafide laptop. It's that push that has gotten the attention of the entire industry, with everyone from Lenovo to Asus and now Dell pushing out potent 2-in-1 units that manage to straddle the line between slate and laptop with very little compromise.The Inspiron 13 7000 is Dell's latest two-faced unit, and the one we're testing is a top-spec Special Edition model that's faster and more beautiful that the other models in the line-up....

Earlier today, we brought you news of the exciting new XPS 13 notebook, refreshed Alienware 15 and 17 notebooks, and the availability of the Venue 8 7000 Series tablet that was originally announced in September of last year. But those products aren’t the only ones that Dell has on display here in Las Vegas, there are still a few more products lurking in the shadows… Dell’s Inspiron laptops might not have the same flair as the XPS or Alienware lineups, but they’re still workhorse machines that will get the job done with little fuss. The company today launched the Inspiron 15 7000 Series, which — like most new laptops announced this week — comes with fifth generation Intel Core processors. Dell... Read more...

As much as we obsess about the latest and hottest hardware, we sometimes like to take a look at a value system to see what kind of bang you can get for your buck on a tight budget. And with the school year just getting underway, the Dell Inspiron 11 3147 caught our eye as a possible candidate for a highly mobile classmate or conference room colleague. It’s a light, tiny laptop with a screen that folds completely back so you can use the device as a tablet whenever it suits your needs. To a budget-minded student who wants a versatile laptop (and that won’t feel like brick in his or her backpack), the Inspiron 11 3000 series 2-in-1 convertible could be a win. We took the system for a... Read more...
Tablets aren’t the only goodies Dell has in store at Computex this year. The company is rolling out new Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 notebooks and an Inspiron AIO, too. The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 features quad-core Intel Pentium (N3530) or Celeron (N2830) processors and 500GB of storage (plus 20GB of Dropbox storage) with battery life over 8 hours. It has Waves MAXXAudio technology on board, and the 360-degree hinge offers a variety of positions. The device offers a 10-point multitouch display and facial recognition software for more secure online password use. Dell Inspiron 11 3000 It also has 4GB of DDR3L-1333MHz RAM; an optional DVD+/-RW optical drive; 720p HD webcam; and HDMI,... Read more...
As one of the top-shelf systems in the company's mainstream line-up, the Inspiron 15 7537 is in an interesting position in Dell’s extensive family of laptops and ultrabooks. This laptop is too pricey to be considered affordable by most consumers, and yet it’s not quite in the same class as and doesn't have the luxury features of Dell’s XPS systems. Understandably, Dell’s premium XPS line gets a lot of attention in the press. We recently checked out the XPS 13 ultrabook and XPS 15 laptop and pegged them quality products for serious users. The Inspiron series is more likely to be overlooked by power users because the Inspiron 3000 and 5000 are Dell’s value and mainstream... Read more...
CES is a blast in part because we get to see and touch exciting technology and amazing prototypes and grill companies in person about the latest rumors pertaining to their products. Yet for as exciting as all of that may be, it’s also a time for companies to simply look us in the eye and proudly show off their latest wares, whether they’re headline-grabbers or just solid updates to existing product lines. Dell fell into the latter camp this year for the most part, showing off their latest products to us away from the bustle of the show floor, at a quiet restaurant banquet room down the road. (We do enjoy pounding the pavement on the show floor, but it was nice to not have to shout... Read more...

It may feel like summer has only just begun, but Dell is already getting ready for back-to-school with the introduction of its newly redesigned Inspiron laptop family. All of the new Inspiron laptops will offer options with Intel’s new 3rd Generation Core i processors (Ivy Bridge), Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, and will be eligible for the Microsoft Windows 8 upgrade program. The first Inspiron ultrabook, the Inspiron 14z, features Intel Rapid Start Technology and up to seven hours of battery life. This ultrabook starts at 4.12 pounds and measures 0.83-inches (21mm) at its thickest point. The Inspiron 13z features SWITCH lids for customizing the ultrabook, up to seven and a half hours...

Dell announced the new Inspiron One 2320 all-in-one desktop. Designed with families in mind, the Inspiron One 2320 features an all-in-one design that measures 68mm thick for the touch-screen model and slightly less for the non-touch model. The Inspiron One 2320 is available with Intel Core i5 or i7 processor options, a 23-inch WLED display, optional discrete graphics, 6GB of DDR3 memory (upgradeable to 8GB), built-in Wi-Fi, and a HD webcam.

Dell added to its newest new line of z-series notebooks with the announcement today of the Inspiron 13z and 14z. The pair complements the recently-released XPS 15z by introducing more options for thin Dell notebooks, but these come in at a lower cost; the Inspiron 14z, for instance, starts at $599.99, while the XPS 15z starts at $999.99. The Inspiron 14z is available now on Dell.com in the U.S. and elsewhere, but the 13z has only been released so far in certain Asian countries. However, both models, according to the press release, will feature second-gen Intel Core i3 or i5 processors, 720p HD displays, and on-processor Intel HD Graphics. Other features the two have in common include built-in... Read more...
If there's anything in the world that's true, it's that there is a near-constant flow of new notebooks flowing out these days. It's clear that the world is becoming more and more mobile, as the ratio of laptop to desktop releases has to be around 5:1 at this point. Every week now, it feels as if one laptop maker or another has a new machine to consider, and both AMD and Intel are investing heavily in the advancement of mobile CPUs. This week, Dell's the lucky winner. They're introducing the Inspiron R series, which features Intel's new and improved Sandy Bridge series of processors. These new rigs are designed for style-focused consumers, with loads of color options and an interchangeable lid... Read more...
